Last year's release of the album Vista put August Rosenbaum on the map as one of the most exciting rising composers. It's a record of evocative and soulful music that brought together August Rosenbaum's rich musical background in both jazz, classical music, film scoring and pop. Vista was written and produced in collaboration with Grammy-nominated producer Robin Hannibal who've worked with an impressive range of artists including Rhye, Little Dragon and Kendrick Lamar.
The upcoming EP Rasa, consists of 5 songs from Vista arranged for solo piano plus the new song "Milo".
August elaborates: "The piano is my starting point for everything when I make music, it has been my natural expression since I started playing at 6 years old, and it is how I hear, feel and create harmonies, chords and melodies. When making Vista with Robin (Hannibal), it became a dogma that underneath all the layers of detail, production and arrangement, there had to be a strong "core", a composition that could carry the emotion and intent when scraped down to only being played on the piano."
